My taillight covers are the ram head ones, 1 of them is chipped and they are so old and faded... I just want to remove them. They are attatched to the taillights by some sort of adhesive, almost looks like a putty. What should I do to help remove this adhesive without leaving behind marks? Its not urgent, just curious :)

I would try to take it off like you are de-badging it. I would use fishing line so you have less of a chance of scratching your lenses. Then use an adhesive remover.

Another way would be to score the adhesive line at the joint with an Xactor knife. You can also bake them (200 degrees) for about 15 to 25 minutes to soften the adhesive. That's how we soften the material that seals our headlights when we wanna put in halos.

Thanks guys, got the faded old ones off :) Heres the picture now. Looks Super clean. Who would have thought that this nice of a taillight was hidden under there?:wow:

Yeah, Thats what I was thinking. The only thing is that it's illegal if there is no reflective surface. Do you know if the reflectors are still visible within the taillights with the tint on it?
